Partial opening for Mount Washington Saturday

The Tube Park, Easy Acres and 10km of XC terrain and snowshoe trails will open Saturday

  • Dec. 17, 2014 10:00 a.m.

With Christmas fast approaching, Mount Washington Alpine Resort could not be more thankful for the recent gift that has been delivered. Now that the temperatures have dropped, the mountain finds itself in the middle of a normal winter weather blast. Over 30cm of new snow has blanketed the slopes since Monday with an additional 40cm predicted to fall this weekend.

This Saturday December 20, the Resort will open with limited winter operations. The Tube Park, Easy Acres beginner area (and its five magic carpets), as well as 10km of cross-country terrain and snowshoe trails, will open Saturday. Beginner lessons and rentals will be available in the Learning Center as well as the first Snowshoe Fondue at Raven Lodge on Saturday evening. “It’s great to see the last couple of weather systems line up like this”, says Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “The snow falls we are seeing are noteworthy. As we get more accumulation, we will open more lifts and terrain as soon as possible.”

The Resort is also pleased to announce that they will be launching a new, dynamic and responsive website, as well as the debut of an android app.
